SA Champion Trainer Sean Tarry send 5 runners into the Summer cup field. Can last years winner Zillzaal repeat his win? Or will one of the horses by St John Gray be the first one to cross the finish line? Christopher Robin seems to be a horse to watch based on latest success stories. But we shouldn’t forget Paul Peter and his 4-year old horse Summer Pudding. She is unbeaten in eight races and ranks very well with the SA bookies, especially after the withdrawal of Got the Greenlight. With his supplementary entries Asterix and Riverstorm Paul Peter sends 2 additional horses on the course on Saturday.
